Once upon a time I found a dead swan in the woods and that very day a journey started learning about lead poisoning and wildlife. Lead ‘fishing sinkers’ and ‘lead shot’ poison many innocent animals in our wild every year. 20 swans in the last 2 years have died in the Winter from lead poisoning at a local creek near my home. Here are two photos I took this Winter of what lead poisoning looks like. What it looks like is sadness. The End. Literally.
